    I heard about this university from one of my teachers in my school whose sister was pursuing her diploma from this college. I got aware about the process via her guidance. The infrastructure of this college and affordable fees structure were the main pillars of my decision to take admission here. The application charge was minimal i.e. $120.

    Course Curriculum :

    It was three year duration course in which I had learned how to analyze, test and design analog and digital circuits, design and test interfaces between computers and peripherals, install, configure and maintain workstations, etc. In addition to it, I had an advantage in my course to turn my diploma into degree eventually. Design and test interfaces between computers and peripherals was my main strength in the late semesters of my course. Although I was good in the rest segments too.
